Peter, rose from £235 to £690 ; Shepherd's bnah from £230 to £520 ; Alford, from £300 to £640 ; Mount Possession, from £380 to £880; Double Hill, £1280] to £1710 ; Craigieburn, £920 to £1320.

Twenty-three were sold at upset prioes, and thirty at advanced rentals; The Commie, eioner expressed himself greatly satisfied with the sale.
